Running in Huaraches.

The last couple of weeks I have been running in my huaraches, from Invisible Shoe.    It has taken sometime, but I am really starting to feel comfortable running in them.   No doubt running huaraches is the ultimate minimal running footwear, I am a fan of Vibram Five Fingers, but huaraches are even better.  I love the freedom the huaraches give me feet,  the toes can totally splay out without being restricted.   So far I have been running in the huaraches without socks.

I took an interesting run a few nights ago after my night class.   I got home around 10:30pm, changed, and out the door.   I ran a 5 miler, by mile 3 I couldn’t wait to get home, just by gauging how my feet were reacting to the cold I knew it had to be really freezing.  I didn’t check the temps, nor did I know how cold it was before the run.   It was 16 degrees, and I ran without socks, my feet totally got numb by mile 4.  I was slowly warming them up in my comfy fuzzy Ugg slippers, my pinky toe on my left foot was concerning me.  It was totally white compared to my other toes, and was not warming up.  I went to bed with it still freezing, it didn’t fall off at night, so it’s all good.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
